After completing their training with leading performing artists, children will present a real performance. Authentic professional performances by instructors will also be featured
In “Traditional Performing Arts for Kids,” children learn about traditional culture by experiencing the real thing. About 300 children have trained in Japanese cultural arts over several months, and they will present the results of their work in authentic productions on stages where tradition lives and breathes.
With the children’s serious attitudes, the powerful professional performances and the accessible commentary, the public performances have received praise such as “It was great fun and I learned a lot!” We hope to see you there!
